One of my breakfast favorites, this is a quick version of the other green smoothie I have on the blog. The other one has 8 ingredients and uses a larger variety of kale that has to be washed and chopped; this one has half the ingredients and takes half the time to make! Plus, the baby kale blends beautifully.

Pulse the cucumber, pear, and lemon juice until smooth. Add the kale and blend until smooth. Add a little water if needed to loosen up.

Pour into glasses and drink immediately.
